Looking for a master's thesis project? Check out the list of projects. Read more about the DIS group at CWI.

Master’s students in HCI, AI, Cognitive (Neuro-)science and/or (Interaction) Design Engineering across any Dutch university / institute are welcome to apply.

You will be doing a scientific internship with us here in Amsterdam at CWI as part of your master’s thesis project. Stipend possible provided your current GPA is greater or equal to 8. We strongly encourage publishing at top-tier conference venues (e.g., CHI, UbiComp, ...), and will mentor you as such. If a topic interests you, get in touch, and I will share more detailed information. Also, you're welcome to propose your own topic, so long as it’s within the broad areas of HCI, Affective Computing, AR/VR/MR, or human-centered AI.
